Adopt-a-Pet: Ebony the German shepherd mix
When Ebony (ID# A0526597), a spayed female German shepherd mix, came into the South Los Angeles animal shelter, she was sensitive to the touch and afraid of people.
She's a different dog today, according to Tomika Johnson, the shelter's New Hope program coordinator -- she's become a friendly, social creature and was even chosen to participate in the shelter's training classes (she's enrolled in them now).
Ebony has come a long way, but she's still missing the most important thing of all -- a good home with an owner who will appreciate the impressive progress she's made in a short time.
Since Ebony is already spayed, she can go home immediately with her new owner. She's about 8 years old and seems to be in good health, apart from a runny nose that might require medication for a short time. Meet her in person at the South L.A. shelter, 3612 11th Ave., or call 888-4LAPET1 with her ID number for more information.
